As some of you might know, Smogcon is a Warmachine/Hordes based event that's been set up to run as an american con. It used to be in Cardiff, but next year it's moving to Guildford and expanding to include Malifaux and Bushido events as well as WM/H. With it being local and lots of us playing those games I thought it might be of interest to people.

 

The website is here: http://smogcon.org and there is a pdf with all the info here: http://smogcon.org/wp-content/.....g20132.pdf

 

It's the 21-23 of February, at the The Mandolay Hotel & Conference Centre in Guildford. 

It's £50 (until November 9th when it goes to £60) for the whole weekend (or £15 for Sunday), and then any of the tournaments and other stuff is free. Looks like it starts 9 Friday morning and goes until 6 Sunday evening.

If you do all the Malifaux events (5 of them) that would be 17 games. There is a Bushido tournament on the Sunday where the winner will get to design a new model with GCT. There will also be IK RPG, all the other games PP do, a Dropzone Commander tournament a whole bunch of painting competitions (Golden Thrall)/events like tutorials and speed painting.

 

There is also a deal with the hotel. If you book a room and say you are with Smogcon it will be £99 a night for the room. So you can split that between multiple people staying in the room. And I believe there will be a swagbag for everyone staying at the hotel. Although of course you don't have to stay at the hotel to attend.

Just got me and Liz a ticket. That makes it 150 tickets sold so far, and I know the hotel is booked up, but there should be plenty of other options just around there.

Looking at it now I may have to decline, it's quite pricy, around £150-200 which (for me) is a bit much.

Hey guys,

 

I've just agreed to help out at Smogcon so I'll see some of you there.

It's looking to be pretty amazing.

Definitely worth the £50 even if you don't stay in a hotel and just travel to Guildford everyday.
